cocoa powder drink for weight loss

For most people cocoa equals chocolate, and chocolate on the other hand equals sugary sweet spoiler of any healthy diet. Well, that’s true for milk chocolate, though.

Pure cocoa powder is one of the most beneficial and powerful natural appetite suppressants in the world. Respectively, dark chocolate, the one made of more than 75 percent cocoa powder inside is so beneficial and healthy – qualities which the milk chocolate will never have.

However, today I’m not talking about dark chocolate or chocolate drinks, but for a weight loss drink made of pure cocoa powder:

Pure Cocoa Powder Weight Loss Drink


  • 1 level tablespoon* of Pure Cocoa Powder
  • 1 cup of hot water (8 oz.)

* A level tablespoon means one with a flat peak, i.e. the ingredient (in our case cocoa powder) is at the same level with the top edge of the spoon. In order to measure that correctly, you should fill the spoon and then run with the back side of a knife horizontally across the edges of the spoon. Make sure you do that just above the cocoa powder jar, so the excess powder drops just where it should 😉


Mix the cocoa powder with the cup of hot water in a large enough cup and stir very well. It can’t be any easier, right?


Let the cocoa drink cool for a few minutes and drink it.


Bitter at first, but definitely not unpleasant (like my kids described it when they tried my first cup 😉

    You can do that up to 8 times a day – 8 tablespoons equal 4 oz., which is the maximum safe amount of pure cocoa powder consumption per day.
